Book Review: Shades of Earth: An Across the Universe Novel by Beth Revis

Shades of Earth - Beth Revis

The final book in the Across the Universe trilogy picks up immediately after the cliff-hanger ending of A Million Suns with Amy and Elder finally arriving on Centuari-Earth. But all is not what it seems on the planet with unknown dangers lurking around every corner from mutant monsters in the sky, to aliens and even internal threats and tensions between the Frozens and the Shipborns. Secrets are revealed, love is tested, and trust is betrayed through all the twists and turns that will keep you guessing until the pulse-pounding conclusion. This is a thoroughly satisfying conclusion to this action-packed, unique series and I hope Beth revis isn't entirely done with Centuari-Earth. Only critique is that an epilogue wouldn't hurt. With a lot of big things not completey resolved the ending felt kind of abrupt.
